My "lie" weight... a success story

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

I couldn't believe it when I stepped on the scale this morning. I've reached (and am actually below) my "lie" weight of 180 pounds. This is the weight I've used since high school whenever anyone asked. I've used it on applications that required the information, on patient questionnaires for doctors (though they weigh you right then, so I'm not sure who I thought I was fooling.)

It's odd to be at a weight that I automatically and guiltily had blurted out for years when necessary. I almost feel like there's still a bit of unthruth there, but to see the reality of such a weight is fantastic! And as a bonus, my BMI is no longer obese. I am officially overweight now.

    I was happy when the person taking drivers license photo looked at it and actually told me I needed to put a Lower weight on the form. Now one of my new goals is to reach my license weight.

    I can totally relate to this- for the longest time I had a weight of 145 on my license and told people this weight if they asked- eventhough I was nowhere near that weight.

    When I had my license redone a few years ago, I was actually at a weight of 150, so I felt ok changing it to this. Since then I had packed on 71 lbs but when I had my license done a few months ago for moving to a different state, I couldn't bear to put my actual weight on the license, so I went mid-way and put 180- if only!

    I guess this is just one of the little white lies we tell ourselves. I'm sure if we took a poll- 90% of people would not have their accurate weight listed on their licenses- lol!

    In anycase, congrats on "catching up" to your license weight- pretty soon, you'll be able to put a lower weight on there and mean it- keep up the good work!
